SYLLABUS PART 2: THE RULES (2019)

It’s that time of year again. Time for updating the general-purpose appendix to all syllabus for all courses … and for playing Spot The Difference with previous incarnations … This year, in a dramatic change from last year, I’ve not updated anything other than adding this one sentence; so if you see anything that’s no longer true and accurate, please let me know and I’ll make the necessary changes (and of course credit you for your generous crowdsourcing collegiality).

Appendix to THE RULES (2016)

There’s one other thing, not in THE RULES proper but on any syllabus this year.

Not this, tempting though it is as a reminder of what a university is and what it is not:
